A must for anyone working with children!!!
All Coaches, Club Children’s Officers and Designated Liaison Persons must first complete the 3 hour, Safeguarding 1 - Child Welfare & Protection Basic Awareness Course. This course educates participants on the implementation of best practice in protecting the welfare of children involved in sport.
The old six hour Code of Ethics course has been replaced by a three hour course
Sport Ireland has now gone live with an on line Safeguarding 1 Refresher, a web based education resource aimed at providing further training to those who have previously attended a Safeguarding workshop or equivalent.
The content contains four modules which will provide persons in roles with regular responsibility for children an opportunity to learn about:
i. best practice procedure;
ii. understanding of why safeguarding children and young people in sport is important;
iii. recognising the different categories of child abuse and identify the signs of abuse;
iv. and the responding, recording and reporting issues of poor practice or abuse.
The web app can also be found on the Sport Ireland website home page in the Sport Ireland E-Leaning Section.
